CONSULTANT, DESIGN A FINANCE MECHANISM FOR IPLCS IN GUYANA

Closing Date October 11, 2022 closed

Objectives

Conservation International Foundation (Guyana) Inc. (CI-Guyana) is seeking the services of a suitably qualified individual or firm to design and establish an appropriate mechanism for financial and technical support to Indigenous Peoples and Local Communities (IPLCs) for conservation of ecosystems1 and improved sustainable livelihoods in Guyana. The mechanism must integrate strong social and environmental safeguards, including but not limited to a focus on gender and youth, and good benefit sharing practices. Moreover, the mechanism must have strong operational and technical systems, effective beneficiary/partner support procedures, an embedded monitoring and evaluation system, and be responsive to the potential donor objectives and support conditions.

The national financial mechanism is expected to be piloted in Administrative Region 9 and must support actions in sector(s) and sub-sector(s) that result in conservation of biodiversity or ecosystems, especially savannahs, wetlands, fisheries, forests, river systems, and mangroves and coastal systems.
